Dangote Refinery: Energy crisis will end – Gov Sule
Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has felicitated with the President and Chief Executive Officer of Dangote Industries Limited, Alhaji Aliko Dantoge, on the inauguration of the integrated refinery built in Lagos State.
The governor also said issues relating to the energy crisis will be a thing of the past as soon as the products from the refinery hit the petroleum market in the next few months.
Sule stated this on Tuesday during the official commissioning and handover of the 2.2-kilometre Loko-Oweto bridge constructed by the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
The governor lauded the efforts of Buhari, whose tenure as president of the country would end in a few days, saying he had paid his dues while serving the country.
He said, “It is another dream come true. Like yesterday, we saw the end of the energy crisis in Nigeria by the commissioning of the Dangote Refinery.
“It’s another dream come true for the people of Loko and Oweto in Nasarawa and Benue states, respectively, as well as all the southeastern part of the country. We are celebrating a dream come true with the bridge.
“Mr. President, we can’t thank you enough. We believe you have paid your dues, you have done well for us, and by the grace of God, God will also be kind to you.”
The governor, who represented President Buhari at the commissioning of the bridge, shortly after the event, also commissioned the 58km, 33KVA electrification project in Loko, headquarters of Loko Development Area.
He disclosed that his administration had awarded the construction of a two kilometre low tension line from the main road to link Loko town.
“We have also installed four 500KVA transformers, and in addition to that, we have neighbouring towns that are also going to be installed with 200KVA line soon,” the governor added.
In a vote of thanks on behalf of the Loko community, former secretary to the Nasarawa State government, Aliyu Ahmad Tijani, described the event as fulfilling.
“Today is a day of fulfilment, it’s a day of happiness and joy. The entire people of Loko community, as well as those across the River Benue, want to sincerely thank God for making the events possible,” he said.
